Intensive Customer Journey research + formation of dedicated execution team.

UWV executes laws that help the unemployed (massive oversimplification!). With numerous complex services delivered to approximately 1 million customers, leaving the latter dissatisfied too often. How to improve?

UWV

Approach

We led the implementation and development of the “customer journey” initiative. We supervised 7 of these processes, each time examining and improving a critical function in 4 weeks. We analysed the difficulties customers had to deal with, involving all stakeholders along the process.

 

The result
  • We led the sessions in the first projects, and the UWV team assisted. After shared sessions, we switched roles. Today a group, through coaching & reflection, performs independently.

  • More than 90 accurately described improvement initiatives, complete with prototypes, prioritisation, and visualisations.

  • Improved communication, collaboration and understanding between different departments and divisions.

  • Improved results, both for the customer and internal processes.

My role:
  • Design, execution & facilitation of the sessions

  • Coaching of employees in customer research

  • Creation and production of deliverables
